A couple of days back, we let you know that MovieBox could be accessed on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 8.2, and no longer required a jailbreak in order to get up and running. Now, the stock-ready edition has been updated to version 3.3 adding a slew of features, and while MovieBox v3.3 has been knocking around for a while now, it’s the first time that non-jailbreakers have been able to get in on the act. Full details can be seen after the break.
MovieBox 3.1 for jailbreak-less devices was detailed earlier on this week, but version 3.2 and 3.3 – both of which have been present in Cydia for a while – can now be accessed by those who haven’t exploited their device using the likes of TaiG, Pangu or PP.
Version 3.1 to version 3.3 is quite a considerable leap, as you might imagine. Making the jump, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of the numerous MovieBox 3.2.x releases that brought iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus optimizations as well as a number of bug fixes and general performance tweaks, and as you can see, MovieBox 3.3 offers quite a generous dollop of goodness as well.
For example, v3.3 lets users pinpoint the playback server, which should put paid to any lingering AirPlay issues you might encounter, while a bug causing missing images from downloaded movies seems to have been taken care of as well.
It’s not quite all plain sailing just yet, though. As the release notes also identify, there’s an issue with one of the servers at this moment in time, and until it is resolved, you may have problems with some movies. Work is clearly being done to ensure that a fix is forthcoming, and so if you are running version 3.1 on your non-jailbroken device, now’s about the time to update.
Oh, and if you are feeling to jailbreak and install the traditional way, you can take that route so long as you’re running either pre-iOS 8.1.3, or iOS 8.2 betas 1 or 2.
